Live Jasmin is a widely popular live camsite that's been around for awhile and contains one of the larger cam girl archives out there with over 31,000+ models registered and around 700 or so online at any given time. From the name, you might expect to find Asian models here but Live Jasmin mainly features Eastern European babes. Happily, the site also has a more reasonable price per minute rate than many of the other cam sites I've reviewed.
As with most live cam sites, the first thing you'll want to do at Live Jasmin is signup for an account. To get a Live Jasmin account, you need to purchase $29.99 in credits. Once you've setup your account and logged in, you'll be presented with a welcome page which contains links to a handful of featured models as well as info on upgrading your membership to Top Member status. Being a Live Jasmin Top Member requires you to pay 15 credits (the unit of currency used here) every two weeks and entitles you to a number of special features such as being able to private message and rate the performers and being entered in a contest giveaway for 25,000 free credits which occurs bi-weekly. You'll also be able to personalize your search options and your ID will appear differently in chat so the models know you're a Live Jasmin Top Member and will give you extra special attention.
At the top of the page, you'll find links to the Live Jasmin models that are currently online as well as what they call "The 69's Team"...these are top-rated performers that Top Members have voted are the best. I started out by clicking the Who's Online link. Here you'll find the site's content divided up into three big sections: Live Sex Cams, Talents (there are only a handful of people here and they have specialties like astrology and tarot card reading), and Video On Demand (these are pre-recorded videos of some of the Live Jasmin performers).
The Live Sex Cams section is mainly where we want to be and they divide things up there into quite a few categories and subcategories. You'll see sections for Girls, Hot Flirts, Mature Females, Lesbians, Boys, Transgender, and more. Each of those sections then narrows things further...for instance, the Girls section contains separate listings for 18-22, blonde, big tits, anal sex, hairy, ebony, white, latina, etc. There's a number next to each category telling you how many of that type of model are currently online. There's also a custom filter section which really allows you to find exactly what you're looking for by selecting from a number of attributes and matching a model (or models) to your selection. You'll need to visit the camgirl's bio page to find out her specific age however.
The look of the site is pretty familiar with small thumbnails of each of the available Live Jasmin models and links below their pics to chat with them. Most of the girls have free chat available and if you mouseover their pic, you'll be able to see their free cam feed (this can be full-screened) without entering their room. Clicking the camgirl's pic of course takes you to the free chat area where you'll have the ability to chat textually with the model and be able to hear her audio (if available).
Anyhow, some of the girls limit their free chat to members only (which shouldn't be a problem since you've most likely already signed up for an account) and a few only allow private chat but provide a free video teaser of themselves for you to check out. Mousing over a model will also bring up tiny flags which tell you the languages the girl/guy speaks. This does not tell you the model's country of origin however...pretty much all of the performers here have English listed as a language but not all of them are American or British by any stretch. Most look to be Eastern European or Latina studio models but you will find Americans here and there.
Anyhow, once in the Live Jasmin free chat area, you'll be able to type back and forth with the babe in the chat window, adjust the screen size, audio volume, and video settings of the cam feed, take a snapshot of the screen (for a small credit fee), and view the performer's personal page where you'll often find a sample video of her on cam as well as a photo gallery and a listing of some of the things she does in private shows. In free chat, you can also give the girl a "Surprise" (for a small credit fee)...stuff like virtual flowers, a heart, etc. Purchasing a private show is as easy as clicking the link at the top of the free chat stream. You'll be taken to a confirmation page where they tell you how many credits/minute that performer charges and then a link to launch the show. Most shows cost 1.99-2.99 credits per minute with some a bit higher than that and others which feature a bargain rate of only 0.98 credits per minute. Some girls offer a couple of show options which can effect the price...for instance, it might cost extra to have two-way audio in your private chat.
Once in a private show, the setup looks pretty much the same except there's usually a second cam window available to the right if you want to cam to cam (this seemed to be no extra charge, at least with the camgirls I checked out) and chat is now conducted at the bottom of the page. The ability to adjust video size and settings as well as snapshot the screen are all there for you as well. The video quality is generally good although this does of course depend on whether or not you picked a camgirl with an HD stream or not. They also provide you with a timer up at the top of the page so you know how much time you have left based on how many credits are in your account.
The camgirls I had shows with were relatively good...the main problem I had with them was the fact that they're foreign (read: non-American) so language can be a problem. Also, I did notice some of the babes taking a bit of extra time obeying my instructions or typing superfluous things in chat to eke out a few more seconds. This stuff is pretty typical of foreign studio models which is why I prefer the real U.S. amateurs working from home. Overall though, no real complaints and I enjoyed the shows I watched...after all, if the chick is naked and rubbing her pussy for me, I don't really care if she's speaking Romanian or English.
Live Jasmin is definitely a quality cam site with plenty of nice features to offer you. On the plus side, Live Jasmin offers a huge archive of models (over 31,000 with around 700 typically online) and an overall price per minute rate that's cheaper than most of the competition. They also feature a selection of bargain priced models who offer private shows for as low as $0.98/minute. The girls here are hot for sure however it seems like they do tend to be mainly European or Latina (with few American babes available it seems) and they're often (but by all means not always) paid studio models as opposed to real amateurs working from home. This might not matter to you as the bottom line is there's a large selection of hot girls available willing to get naked and do most anything you ask for a cheaper rate than you're likely to find at many cam sites. If that sounds good to you, head on over to Live Jasmin!
